About 1,500 fans attended an afternoon rally for Marcus Lattimore on South Carolina’s campus yesterday. Lattimore was lost for the season on Saturday when he sustained the second major knee injury of his career. Speakers included teammates, school president Harris Pastides, and US Senator Lindsey Graham. Well wishes and proclamations came in from US Vice President Joe Biden and Palmetto State Governor Nikki Haley.
That’s a darn big show of respect for a college running back who tore up his knee. It says a lot about Lattimore’s reputation off the field, as well as on it. You can see video from the rally by clicking here.
On a positive note, Steve Spurrier said that Lattimore wanted him to tell the crowd, “I’ll be back.” The coach added: “We’re going to get Marcus for our or five years instead of three. That’s one positive we know of.”
